|Title||3 soldiers relaxing under a tree|
|Notes||Postcard sent by Robert James Beadon to his mother, (my great aunt I think, I found this in a box of photos when my aunt died.) I don't know which of the three soldiers he is.|
It reads This is how we are compelled to walk about owing to the heat, I don't know what it will be like when we get the other side of the Mountains 'Caucasus' as we soon shall be now
I think he must have been going to Mesopotamia because I found this on the the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website -
